You can't change your spouse...
...But you can change the relationship, and that changes everything.
In this comprehensive guide to marriage, we are given a Torah based perspective on the inner dynamics of marriage. Beginning with the assertion that HASHEM wants marriage to flourish, and that He gave us all the tools to succeed, we explore the inner workings of a relationship.
What are his needs?
What are hers?
Why is it that so often men and women don’t relate to each other?
What readers are saying:
“Realistic and down to earth”
The Marriage Seminar – is excellent; it’s realistic, down to earth, and provides clear advice and direction.
“I finally understand my wife”
finally understand why my wife reacts the way that she does. Now I have to get her to listen to it, so she can understand me!
“For the first time, I understand my marriage.”
It gave me so much of a better understanding of what marriage is, and what it’s not.
"The Marriage Seminar provides the guidance and understanding needed to create a successful, harmonious, long standing marriage."
By focusing on some of the most basic needs of a human, and then moving on to many of the more common pitfalls and blunders that couples make, we are given a tour of the complex weave of emotions, needs and expectations that creates a successful marriage.
What Rabbi’s are saying:

Isn't it ironic?
To drive a car in NY
you have to pass a written exam, take a drivers
ed course, have 50 hours of supervised practice
and then pass a driving test.
To become a barber in California
you have to take a 1500-hour course and pass
a written and practical test.
To get married in these states
ALL you have to do is sign your name and pay a fee.
Doesn’t a successful marriage require as much education as driving a car?

“Captures the reader’s mind and heart through vivid imagery. A must-read for anyone who is looking to find true meaning and fulfillment in life.
“Written in accessible language, it reads like a casual conversation with a friend – except that this conversation is deceptively deep and spiritual.”
